The first two layers (F2L) of the Rubik’s Cube are solved simultaneously rather than individually. In the Orient last layer (OLL); Permute last layer PLL 4. PLL (Permutation if Last Layer): Correctly permuting the last layer corner & edge .. the F2L, know the Full PLL and 2 look OLL, and finally go for the full OLL too. So I’m really new to all these terms. Can someone explain to me what the acronyms PLL / OLL / and F2l mean? (And any others that exist).

This can’t be solved as simply, but the idea is exactly the same. Have a go on your cube, and see if you can work out how to solve any of the pairs. This doesn’t disturb any of the other F2L spaces, pll you can c2l that the red-green pieces are looking rather unsolved and c2l.

Going slowly isn’t better – going faster is better, but you’ll get faster by going slower. You can also order the olp by trigger, which I think is much more conducive to memorisation. You needn’t go through the steps in order – you can learn and practise each bit independently, falling back on the beginner method as and when you need it.

So for OLL, instead of orienting every piece in the last layer at once, we’ll do the edges first and then the corners. The two sections of the algorithm show the two steps in the same procedure as before – the first bracketed section shows the pairing of the two cubies, and the second section shows the pair being inserted correctly. Even though you can already solve okl case using the beginner way, I would take the time to practise and learn this algorithm now.

You aren’t satisfied with people standing around for 2 minutes while you solve it because that guy at the office didn’t believe you. All of that being said, I can give you some situations to hopefully make the process easier.

Instead, a simple U’ before the algorithm means that when you then pair the red-blue corner and edge piece, you avoid affecting the blue-orange pair. Now insert the ff2l into its slot.


The algorithm page has each OLL algorithm ordered by the shape they resemble, so you can find which situation you need easily. As you practise incorporating the techniques on this page into your solves, you will learn to recognise the various other OLL and PLL situations, which will help immensely in their memorisation. Turning the whole cube in your hands is a slow waste of time.

Opl differs from case 2 only by the orientation of the edge blue is up, not orange. Views Read Edit F2 history. I shall now try to explain some further concepts that you can use to improve your F2L. But because you’re not a beginner any more, you can be a little clever if you find yourself presented with this:.

You want to be one of those people, who can just look at a cube, and ten seconds later boom, it’s done. It is usually done starting with the white colored squares. Learning and practising this method can take you all the way to the top of the game – it is f2 by a lot of the top speedcubers to set world records, including the current staggeringly low time of 4.

And any others that exist Thanks! However, there is such a list on the algorithms pagewhere you can see each F2L case and how to solve it. And to add on to all of this – I get the Fridrich method Plk think. But I do enjoy it.

However, knowing that you can solve this step using just one algorithm is useful during the learning process!

You can do this in whatever order you choose but I have arranged them in what I think is a sensible order to learn them – I have grouped similar algorithms, and put what I think are the easier ones first.

There are, however, a few situations you might find yourself in where this procedure is not quite so obvious. The first algorithm either requires you to shift your hand position to twist the F face or start using some peculiar thumb movements.

This completes the cube, which you probably know looks like this:. What’s even better is that these few algorithms are used in the full CFOP method anyway, so we’re not wasting any time!

It can be quite difficult certainly so if you’ve only just started doing it upside down but with practice it will become very easy to isolate only the four edge pieces you need and formulate a basic plan to get them into a cross.

This might seem like a trivial difference to you, but each little pause adds up, and when you’re trying to really push down your f2p time every second counts. This means that doing the cross on the bottom is difficult, as they have come to rely on algorithms for situations that are suddenly upside-down.

It is the greatest oak that has the strongest roots, and you’ll grow your roots using the beginner’s guide.

What’s PLL / OLL / F2l ?

Make sure that the colours of the other stickers on r2l edges are in this order: There are, however, some more optimal algorithms. But what is f22l without a bit of a challenge every now and then. If doing the cross on the bottom takes much longer than when doing it on the top, don’t be disheartened! They also tend to use more double layer turns like d as opposed U y’.

Why not see how well you can do with the timerand please do get in touch if you have anything you’d like to say, or leave a comment below! If you do UF’U2, you can turn this case into case 2 above.

They don’t look scary at all, and there’s even some triggers in c2l that you’ve already seen!

If they need to move clockwise, then use this algorithm:. Make a white cross, solve the corners, solve layer 2, then layer 3. At this stage, a lot of people still find it quite difficult to intuitively manipulate the cube.
